After going three straight seasons without a touchdown, Zach Miller is making up for lost time. In the second quarter of Sunday’s Bears game against St. Louis, the veteran tight end caught his second touchdown of the game.

Miller has become Jay Cutler’s favorite target of late. He has now caught a touchdown in two straight games, three total touchdowns over that stretch.

The first touchdown of the day for the Bears came on one of the longest receptions in team history. Miller caught a short pass from Cutler, broke a tackle and raced down the field for an 87-yard touchdown.

The second touchdown of the game was a little easier for Miller. Cutler found him in the back of the end zone giving the Bears their first lead of the game.

Miller lost most of the last three seasons to injuries. While he is still the second tight end for the Bears behind Martellus Bennett, Miller is emerging as a weapon for the Bears.
